Dressed Up

I'm sharing a little sweetie from Lili of the Valley called 'Dressed Up' today for my As You Like It card sample.  The theme is to share your favourite flowers. I couldn't decide whether to opt for my favourite paper flowers (embellishments) or my favourite garden variety, so I played it safe and opted for both!  

For floral embellishments I love lilies and open roses which I often use, as well as the starburst ones which I can't seem to buy anymore.  I also sneaked in a two-tone pink rosehip which I think are beautiful.

However, the flowers that I love most in the garden are tulips, which I rarely use in paper form.  Tulips remind me of Spring with the end of the cold weather in sight. I also love the variety in colour and especially love the double variety which can resemble roses.  I love the pinks and plum colours, but my favourites are probably oranges and yellows, which remind me of little flames lighting up the garden in the Spring sunshine!

Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Fur: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs, 
  • Grass: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Pinks: Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry

She is adorable Annette and the pretty flowers are an ideal decoration. I think the snow has halted our tulips this year, there is not one shoot in sight and even the poor daffodils got battered, surely it must warm up soon!! xx

I know styles have changed in favour of the more modern designs but it’s nice to see the flowers and ribbon for a change
